Square One’s Learn & Earn Program Offers Summer Session

SPRINGFIELD — Youth ages 16 to 24 who are currently out of school and looking to earn their high-school equivalency and/or gain paid work experience are encouraged to contact Square One to learn about the agency’s Learn & Earn program.

The Square One Learn & Earn program helps prepare young workers, including parents of young children, for jobs vital to the community.
